Great, isn’t it? Tree down, decorations gone and time for the obligatory ‘Let’s go to the park and photograph the frost’ walk! Normality has returned!
Oh, January, such joy!..
I was searching for a message I’d received recently on Facebook, and suddenly came across a section of my page I’d never seen before. In it were 48 unread messages! Forty-eight!! Bloody hell! It seems it’s a section where messages go if you’re not a ‘Friend’ with a person but they message you anyway, so they varied in importance from utterly irrelevant or highly amusing to ‘Oh, bugger, I wish I’d seen this’! Irrelevant messages included one which started ‘Dear O’Neill’ and one which told me about an Uncle who’d died and left me $17.2m .. Nice! Highly amusing ones included two involving the famous photographer Terry O’Neill. ‘Is he your Dad?’ asked one and ‘Can you put us in touch with him?’ asked another. A couple of people asked if I remembered them (No!) and there was one which simply said ‘Such a loser’ but then there were messages saying things like ‘The prints were really fantastic’ and ‘Promotional material received; Photography and quality brilliant!’ …. Aaagh! Who? When? What? Oh, bugger! Note to self: Monitor your pages more effectively!..
Oh, the original message I wanted to find? A Wedding enquiry for 2016. The fourth I’ve had in a week! Looks like Manchester Wedding Photography will be shooting more than frost come this time next year ..
